About Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services

Celebrating our 80th anniversary this year, Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services has provided free mental health care, substance use disorder treatment and suicide prevention since 1942. Dedicated to serving communities where discrimination and injustice limit access, Didi Hirsch envisions a future where everyone can thrive with access to high-quality care that treats mental health and physical health as inseparable.

Founded in 1958, our Suicide Prevention Center Center 24/7 multilingual Crisis Lines field calls, chats, and texts for the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, national Disaster Distress Helpline, Teen Line, Los Angeles Police Department, and others. We also provide suicide-specialized therapy and support groups, training and education programs.
